COVID-19 Update: A Note From Our Executive Director – Julie Faryniarz:
The Alliance is thinking about its donors, program participants, volunteers, board & advisory council members and the community at large during this difficult and uncertain time. With the physical closure of the Greenwich Public Schools, many of the programs you generously support or participate in are currently on hold while others are continuing on a virtual basis. Our mentors are checking in with their AVID college mentees to find out if they need any additional support at this time. The Alliance is postponing the Reaching Out Grant review process until late April/May and anticipates announcing awards in June.
The Greenwich United Way is coordinating information from all of the town’s agencies, state information, and updates from the CDC about COVID-19 at this link: https://greenwichunitedway.org/resources/. This link will be updated by each agency and includes valuable information about our schools, food needs, mental health services, and senior care. Additionally, we have complied a list of resources for parents to help provide structure and activities for kids at home during this period.
Stay healthy and safe – Julie
